Foriegn Liquor

During the year 2001-2002 due to the change in liquor policy of Government, Federation has ventured in the field of Foreign Liquor business. Due to the high rate of Kisth (License Fee payable to Government) and Turn over Tax rate, when compared with the trade margin permitted by Government, this business has resulted in heavy loss from the 1st year itself. The accumulated loss up to 31/03/2006 was Rs. 23.97 crores. From 2006-07 onwards we have introduced radical changes in purchase policy and matters related to foreign liquor business which give positive results. During the last few years this business is working in profit. At present we have 36 Foreign liquor shops and three beer shops.
